PSY 631 - Ethics


(3 Credits)

This course is designed for graduate students pursuing careers in applied and/or experimental psychology. The purpose of this course is to provide a depth of understanding to relevant ethical issues, guidelines, and practices. In addition to exposure to fundamental ethical principles and historic foundations, students will also become aware of the range of ethical dilemmas confronting the modern practitioner. Through reading, discourse, and discussion of case studies, students will develop competence in utilizing a range of decision making models. Such models will be applied to salient issues such as but not limited to; group counseling, family therapy, child therapy, end-of-life issues, supervision, termination, mandated reporting, standards on human relations, sexual intimacy, confidentiality, assessment and testing, and the rights of clients.  By engaging in an examination and discourse of such ethical issues the student will become better prepared to anticipate and address ethical dilemmas as a professional and develop practical problem-solving strategies necessary for maintaining professional ethical standards.
